The Big Four in Trash Metal Together On The Same Stage

It’s been confirmed today, that Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax & Slayer will perform together on the same stage during Sonisphere Festivals in Warsaw, Poland and Prague, Czech Republic on June 16 and 19, 2010. Yes you read it right – Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax & Slayer!!

This will be the first time the big four share a stage, and they are planning more dates together so stay alerted in case they show up in a place near you.

In comments over at Lars Ulrich says: “Who would have thought that more than 25 years after its inception, thrash metal’s big 4 would not only still be around and more popular than ever, but will now play together for the first timeR30;what a mindfuck! Bring it on!

Kerry King (Slayer): “It’s about fucking time this happened, and about time the fans finally get what they want. This is fucking awesome.

Scott Ian (Anthrax): “People have been talking about these four bands playing together since 1984. That’s twenty-six years of expectation!!! And the thing is, I believe not only will we live up to the expectations, we will shatter them!! No other four bands as influential as the four of us have ever done this. Imagine if The Beatles, Stones, The Who and Zeppelin had done shows? Or Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, Motorhead? Well, I may be getting into some rarified air here but as a fan, that’s how big I feel this is.

Dave Mustaine (Megadeth): “This is a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity for Heavy Metal “Fans” to see the four greatest Heavy Metal “Bands” in American History back together on one stage. If there are any heads left at the end of this Festival that haven’t banged, they don’t belong there.
